PRESS AGENT SLIGHTLY
New York, Feb. 12. The fair
Lillian Russell says her press
agent has "lipped one over on
Lillian referred to the story
r that appeared in the morning
papers, and according to which
Lillian had sent word to Alexan
der P. Moore, Pittsburgh editor
and her fiance, that she would not
marry -him unless he had an in
- come of $60,000. '
Lillian herself couldn't be
seen at noon today. She had not
finished her usual morning calis
thenics, and was in her "bood
war," lightly clad.
But she sent word by her sister,
Mrs. Ross, that her press agent
must have been looking on the
wine when it was red in the cup.
According to the story in this
morning's paper, Lillian said: "I
.never was a piker, either at the
races or at the matrimonial game.
A maYried woman may be happy
for a few weeks on love, but then
she had to commence signing
The story then went on, with
great detail to tell how Lillian
had sent word to Editor Moore
that unless he could show her the
goods to-wit, an established in
come of $60,000 a year she
would never be his.
Lillian said or sent her sister
to say "nothing of the sort" to

ions regarding the need of mixing
money with matrimony, but still
according to Mrs. Ross there
has been no difference in this or
any other subject between her
and Moore, and they still were
engaged to be married.
CAN YOU IMAGINE THIS
Los Angeles, Cal., Feb. 12.
Despite the denial made by James
J. Jeffries, that he proposes to re
turn to the ring and challenge
Jack Johnson to another battle
for the heavyweight champion
ship, there is a growing belief
here that such is his intention.
The credence to the report is
due to the statements made by
Jack Jeffries, James' brother.
Jack says that his brother has
given and is giving the matter
considerable thought, and that
he has not yet finally decided
what his future course will be.
It is said that during several
training stunts recently Jeffries
was surprised at the form he
showed, inspiring many of his
friends to believe that,' by some
months of hard work he could
restore his old-time form.
Maybe Bryan will be president.
Maybe the correspondent who
wired this story was perfectly so
ber. Anr maybe you think we be
lieve the "pipe."
Oh yes ! And maybe it will be
real warm tomorrow.
